Research Profile

Dr. Vincent is the Director of the Human Performance Laboratory and the Director of the UF Health Sports Performance Center. She is a University Term Professor 2018-2021. Her main clinical research focus is the study of the effects of obesity on joint disease mechanisms such as osteoarthritis, and the development of exercise based interventions to reduce disease pathology, pain and disability. She uses an integrative approach in her research, and combines physiological assessment, biochemical markers, biomechanical measures and patient subjective measures to study these relationships.

In the Sports performance Center, Dr. Vincent oversees the development of numerous health, fitness and motion analysis services. Her main sport foci include running for health and the study of lacrosse. Her specialty for lifestyle change includes the use of exercise and nutrition modification for weight management and health.
